So here is the deal. Quarantine life is not something most of us are used to. Now, what better way to be alone than to be alone virtually with others and do what you love? If there is one social media app helping millions around the world do this, it’s Tik Tok, and it’s birthing many challenges. One challenge that we can’t get enough of is the #dontrushchallenge.

Many have their reservations about jumping unto new apps but with self-isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, there’s plenty of time for that and more. Social distancing has become more fun with the various challenges that have been going around to encourage people to just #StayAtHome.

Makeup artists are the driving force behind the #dontrushchallenge and these beauty influencers are showcasing their works. Well, other women who are not makeup artists have also jumped on the wagon to exhibit their skills with the brush. “Don’t Rush” by Young T & Bugsey Ft. Headie One is used as the feature song for most of these videos.

The transformations are jaw-dropping and these black beauties spanning from Benin to Mali, the USA to South Africa have personified the phrase “black is beautiful” with their melanin drip on ten thousand.

The brothers don’t want to be left out and their spinoff challenge, #nobrotherleftbehindchallenge, is all the more reason why we are glued to our phones lately. Their dapper glam is lifting gloomy quarantine moods up and the ladies are sure not complaining.
